between the two.

so there i stood,
between the gates of heaven and the gates of hell.
which was which,i couldnt tell.

my hart was beating.
like a big old bass drum.
looks like my time as come.
with my hart beating out of time.
thought of the life ive lead.
and all the hurt and crime.

then i heard voices,telling of bad choices,
that ide made,and all the stupid games ide played.

then an angry voice said.
i am the angel of hell.
and you are coming with me.
hard labour for eternity.
then a manic laughter rung
unless ude rarther just be hung,

then a softer kinder voice spoke.
hold hells wild horses.
it seems youve overlooked something.
the boy can play the boy can sing.
so i will get my old guitar.
and well see if hes a star.

we will see if he can play.and if he can hold is nerves.
if not hes yours today.just as he deserves.

but then if he can sing like an angel.
then an angels what hell be.
and hell be staying here with me.
with gods gentle hand on my shoulder.
i sung and played up a storm.
the devil walked away.
back into the warm.

between the two.
